Virtual CISO Services
Let our Virtual CISO team assist with your security program. We have vCISO services options for part-time and full-time engagements as well as individual security projects. We set ourselves apart from other vCISO services by providing a dedicated Virtual CISO. We believe in providing the best value for our customers. The dedicated support model ensures that your vCISO understands your environment, knows your team, and can execute based on this knowledge.
Why should you consider a Virtual CISO?
It is not always cost effective to hire a full-time Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for your Enterprise Risk Management and Information Assurance Program. Our advisors practice efficient delivery of security services rather than punching a 40-hour time clock. This reduces costs while reducing risk at the same time. Another key reason to use our services is that we pride ourselves in being very hands-on. We are a small business where our advisors are required to wear multiple hats. This means that your CISO is prepared for operational services as well as strategic services. We do not wait for direction. We do not assign tasks. We deliver. We deliver by providing hands-on security services. The CISO will improve security over a period of time. This period of time can be ramped up to meet external influences such as customer requests, audit requirements, or new threats.
